Victoria Oil and Gas, the Cameroon-based utility specialist, has appointed industry veteran Iain Patrick to its board.
Patrick will join as a non-executive director, bringing more than 30 years’ experience.
He is currently chief executive of Trinity Energy and was previously director of commercial & legal affairs at Gulf Keystone. He serves as senior independent non-executive director of Madagascar Oil.
Victoria chief executive Kevin Foo, said: “Today’s appointment brings our complement of independent non executive directors back to two. The company is also considering an additional independent director to be appointed during 2016.”
AIM-listed VOG has been one of a handful of firms to successfully monetise gas in sub-Sahara Africa by developing the Logbaba gas field in Douala, Cameroon.
Last month James McBurney resigned as a non-executive director after relocating to the United States to pursue business interests in the alternative fuels sector.
